Article 2


Internal Classification of Academic Fields at the University


1. The registers under this directive and for the purposes of internal quality evaluation at the University adhere to the internal classification of academic fields at the University (“internal classification”), comprising four levels:

a) Panel – in accordance with the evaluation guidelines and the Code of Procedure for the Internal Evaluation Board, internal classification is organised into four panels:

i. arts and humanities (“HUM”);

ii. social sciences (“SOC”);

iii. natural sciences (“SCI”); and

iv. medical and health sciences (“MED”).

b) Research area – for the purposes of internal quality evaluation at the University, research areas have been established within panels, listing academic fields under letter c) of this paragraph on the basis of the following criteria:

i. relatedness/closeness of the fields;

ii. possibility to use uniform evaluation tools across the research area; and

iii. uniform evaluation parameters.

c) Academic field – academic fields are basic units of internal classification; academic fields must be specified for grants, projects, outputs, and authors in accordance with the rules set out in this directive.

d) Subfield – where it is necessary to subdivide an academic field in order to further differentiate relatedness/closeness among a greater number of programmes of study, subfields are established; it can be stipulated whether it is mandatory to indicate a particular subfield when classifying activities and outputs.


2. In addition, internal classification includes relations to other systems of structuring and categorisation by field, in particular the following:

a) a loose relation implying relatedness/closeness between an academic field and the categories used in the Web of Science and Scopus databases;

b) a loose relation implying relatedness/closeness between an academic field or, where relevant, a subfield, and a programme of study offered at the University;

c) a loose relation implying relatedness/closeness between an academic field or, where relevant, a subfield, and a field for the associate professorship appointment procedure or a field for the full professorship appointment procedure offered at the University;

d) a loose relation implying relatedness between an academic field and an area of study; and

e) a close relation between an academic field and one and only field in the code list of IS VaVaI.


3. Furthermore, internal classification includes information on the types and sub-types of outputs common in the respective research areas.


4. The form and content of internal classification have been determined on the basis of academic discussions across the University, and are managed by the Research Support Office, under the authority of the competent Vice-Rector who, usually annually, launches a feedback survey for the submission of comments regarding any updates to internal classification.


5. The internal classification currently in force is available in electronic form in the OBD module Evaluation of IS Věda karlos.cernoch@post.cz (“Hodnocení systému IS Věda”).


Part II - Register of Authors

Article 3

Authors are primarily registered in the WhoIs personnel system and in the Student Information System. The data on authors entered in these systems are further used, in accordance with this directive, in the IS Věda system, and are complemented, via this system, by the additional data referred to in this directive.

Article 4


Assignment of Persons to Academic Fields of Internal Classification


1. For the purposes of internal quality evaluation, it is necessary to assign authors to the academic fields of internal classification.


2. Authors are required to enter assignment details provided that during the evaluation period they satisfied the following criteria:

a) their involvement rate within their employment relationship, with a pay band stipulated by the implementing regulation on internal evaluation under Article 7 (19) of the Rules for the System of Internal Evaluation and Quality Assurance (the “Implementing Regulation”), or with an employment contract with an agreed contractual pay and an ensuing right to membership in the academic community, is or was, with respect to a faculty or other unit, equal to (or higher than) the so-called minimum involvement rate of core staff, as determined by the Implementing Regulation on internal evaluation; or

b) they are or were doctoral students and had, for at least one day in a given period, the status of student under the Higher Education Act; or

c) they are or were internal authors of an output registered in the register of outputs; or

d) they are or were internal investigators in a grant/project registered in the register of activities.


3. The assignment of other employees or students who are expected to participate in the creative activities of a faculty or other unit can be done on a voluntary basis.


4. The coordinator for the internal quality evaluation of creative activities for the whole faculty or other unit, or a person designated by the coordinator for a basic unit of a faculty, records the assignment in IS Věda, within the deadline stipulated by the competent Vice-Rector.


5. An author must be assigned to at least one and no more than three academic fields. If an author qualifies for assignment at several faculties, this limitation applies to each faculty individually, and the author may be assigned to the same or different academic fields at the respective faculties depending on the actual situation.

Article 5


Personal Identifiers for Researchers


1. In order to ensure unique identification of the author of a published output, the following personal identifiers (“identifiers”) are used in addition to the personal number assigned by the University:

a) ORCID ID;

b) ResearcherID of the Web of Science database; and

c) Scopus Author ID of the Scopus database.


2. The identifiers are registered via IS Věda.


3. The guidelines issued under Article 13 (4) (a) or Article 13 (6) (c) of this directive, or a special Rector’s directive may stipulate the tasks which require the use of an identifier in the register of authors.


Part III - Register of Activities

Article 6


1. Activities are registered in the GAP module of IS Věda (“GAP module”).


2. The GAP module is the central site for the registration of all operations referred to in Article 7, except for the projects of the Grant Agency of the University covered by the operations under Article 7 (1) (c) of this directive. Such projects are primarily registered in a separate application of the Grant Agency of the University, which automatically feeds selected data into the GAP module, where they are available for reading only.

c) in the case of projects registered in IS VaVaI, the faculty (or other unit where appropriate) is required to ensure, in cooperation with the principal investigator, that the assignment to a field in IS VaVaI is consistent with the assignment of the project within internal classification and compliant with the conversion rules for academic fields at the University and the IS VaVaI code list of academic fields, as set out for internal classification.


5. The guidelines issued under Article 13 (4) (a) of this directive set out other mandatory, conditionally mandatory, and optional data that are registered within the respective operational areas.


6. When entering records, priority is given to the code lists of IS Věda; other values are used only if the necessary value is not included in the code list. When entering the data on investigators who are employees or students of the University, it is mandatory to use the persons code list, into which the records from the central personnel register of the University are automatically fed.


7. Access to and management of records are governed by the following basic rules:

a) the records can be accessed solely by the designated persons of a faculty or other unit;

b) where several faculties or other units are involved in grants and projects, the respective faculties or other units each make a separate record.


8. A Rector’s directive or guidelines issued under Article 13 (4) (a) of this directive may set out, for certain operations or parts thereof, different rules on access and management.


Part IV - Register of Outputs

Article 8


1. Outputs are registered in the module OBD of IS Věda (“OBD module”).


2. The OBD module is a primary source of data on the outputs of the University.


3. Data are collected continuously throughout the year. The records on outputs entered after the data collection deadline announced by the University coordinator for a particular year are not included in the data set prepared for IS VaVaI for the year. Such records are included in the data set for the following year.


Article 9


Content and Formalities of the Register of Outputs


1. It is mandatory to collect data on all kinds of outputs as defined in the valid evaluation guidelines, with the structuring specified in the guidelines issued under Article 13 (6) (c) of this directive.


2. The extent of the data on individual outputs is set out in the guidelines issued under Article 13 (6) (c) of this directive, in particular on the basis of the requirements set out in section 4 of the Government Decree, the guidelines, and other instructions given by the RVVI, and any other needs of the University.


3. Access to, entering, and management of records are governed in particular by the following rules:

a) One record only corresponds to any output in the OBD module.

b) A record must be entered within three months of the publication of the output (or of making the output available to the public), but no later than by the data collection deadline announced for that year.

c) Every output may be registered only with respect to such employment or study relationship of the author that is linked to his or her studies and/or creative activities at the University, and on the basis of which the output was created.

d) When entering records, priority is given to the code lists of IS Věda; other values are used only if the necessary value is not included in the code list. When entering the data on authors who are employees or students of the University, it is mandatory to use the persons code list, into which the records from the central personnel register of the University are automatically fed.

e) Every registered output is assigned to academic fields in accordance with internal classification and the following rules:

i. Assignment to one academic field is mandatory. Based on such primary assignment, the output is, if included in the data set for IS VaVaI, shown in the corresponding field according to the code list of IS VaVaI and assigned to a corresponding research area for the purposes of internal quality evaluation at the University.

ii. It is possible to assign the output to two more fields. Such secondary assignment is used, in conjunction with the primary assignment, to establish relatedness/closeness between the outputs and programmes of study, as well as for other purposes not requiring solely a close relation.

iii. If the assignment is made to academic fields which have subfields, it is possible to assign the output to no more than three subfields of an academic field. If a subfield is required for a particular academic field, at least one subfield must be selected.

f) A record is always managed at one workplace (usually the basic unit of the author who entered the record); if the recorded output involves authors from several faculties or other units, the relevant data processing officer and coordinator for the register of outputs are required to cooperate with data processing officers and coordinators for the register of outputs from other faculties or other units whose employees or students have co-authored the output, in order to synergise the production of correct and complete records.

g) A record can be edited by the owner and the superordinate managers to the extent corresponding to the record approval stage (i.e., based on the record status). The records approved on the respective levels are marked as having a particular status, with a view to achieving the final status as soon as possible. Records with the final status can be edited only by users with the rights of a coordinator.

h) All records are available for reading to all users who have signed in. The records with the “Accepted” status are published (without attached files) on the public interface of IS Věda.


4. If it is necessary, for the internal needs of a faculty or other unit of the University, to register the co-authorship share with respect to outputs, the dean or director of other unit can stipulate that the so-called “intellectual share” will be used internally, in accordance with the following rules:

a) An intellectual share is defined as a co-authorship share in a particular output, expressed as a percentage for each author who is an employee or student of the University; the sum of intellectual shares of all authors, including authors outside the University, is 100% for a particular record. For authors who are not employees or students of the University, an intellectual share is determined collectively for all of them.

b) If the authors from a faculty or other unit which uses intellectual shares on the basis of a decision of the dean or director are named in a record managed by another faculty or unit, such faculty or unit will allow them to enter details in the record about their respective intellectual shares.


5. For the purposes of internal quality evaluation of creative activities, if authors from more than one faculty or unit participated in the creation of outputs, the share of a faculty or other unit will be determined on the basis of the proportionate number of participating authors from individual units, after deducting the share of external authors; the so-called “intellectual shares” under paragraph 4 are not taken into account. Guidance for the calculation of a share of external authors will be set out in the Implementing Regulation on internal quality evaluation of creative activities.


6. For the purposes of internal and national quality evaluation of creative activities, in the case of outputs registered in the Web of Science or Scopus databases, it is necessary to register the internal identifier of the record from such database.


7. In addition, the OBD module is used to store full texts of selected outputs, in particular for the following purposes:

a) to check the records entered;

b) to allow for evaluation of creative activities; and

c) to fulfil the conditions stipulated by the provider of funding for the project within which the output was created.


8. The full text files will be made available solely to designated persons and solely to the extent allowed by the access rights set for each respective file. The Rector will make provisions, in a special directive, for other uses of uploaded full texts of outputs and any publication thereof in the digital repository of the University managed by the Central Library.


9. Based on a decision made by a dean or director of other unit, the full texts of selected outputs uploaded in the OBD module can be also uploaded to the interuniversity database of outputs and compared with the texts of other outputs. The results of such comparison are always made available to the authors of the outputs and coordinators from the faculties and other units of the University where these authors are employed or pursue their studies. The interuniversity database of outputs is not intended for the publication of or for otherwise making available the full texts of outputs. If copyright infringement could occur, the coordinator can remove the full text of an output from the export for the interuniversity database of outputs, upon the author’s request.



Part V


Organisational Arrangements for Registration of Creative Activities


Article 10


Organisational Arrangements at Faculties and Other Units


1. In order to ensure registration of creative activities at individual faculties and other units, the deans and directors make the following arrangements:

a) they appoint a coordinator for the register of identifiers;

b) they appoint a coordinator for the register of activities and, where appropriate, research officers in charge of specific operations within the register of activities;

c) they appoint a coordinator for the register of outputs;

d) they designate a circle of persons authorised to inspect all records in the register of activities of a faculty or other unit;

e) they decide whether the records in the register of activities will be made available to principal investigators of projects (or to persons in charge) and other members of investigation teams; and

f) they duly ensure that attributes of the appointed coordinators are updated in the personnel register of the University.


2. It is possible to merge the coordinators’ posts referred to in paragraph 1 (a) to (c) at a faculty or other unit where appropriate; however, such posts are always entrusted to persons employed at a faculty or other unit.


3. In order to ensure registration of outputs, the heads of basic units of a faculty to which the employees or students involved in the creative activities are attached, appoint a data processing officer for the register of outputs, and they inform the faculty coordinator for the register of outputs of such appointment or changes to such appointment.



Article 11


Responsibilities of Authors


1. For the purposes of the register of identifiers under Article 5 of this directive, the authors are required to enter their identifiers in the register in IS Věda, either themselves or with the help of a coordinator of the faculty or other unit, on the date they enter their first output in the register of outputs, but in the case of employees and doctoral students no later than within two months of the commencement of their employment or study at the University.


2. The responsibility for the recording of the output in the OBD module rests with the author of the output; if the record is in the storage for pre-imported records, the author always uses and completes the pre-imported version of the record. The author can discharge this duty himself/herself or he or she can be represented by another employee of the same basic unit of a faculty or other unit of the University, or by another person according to the rules set out by the dean or director. In the case of collectives of authors, this responsibility rests with the first author among those who are employees or students of the University, in the same order in which the authors are named in the output. The faculty or other unit can further modify this rule in the case of outputs with no involvement of authors from other faculties or other units of the University.


3. In addition, the author of an output has in particular the following responsibilities:

a) responsibility for the completeness, correctness, and accuracy of the record on the output that constitutes a complete bibliographical description of the output and indicate the link of the output to the source of funding and a field in accordance with internal classification;

b) to upload the full text of the output if:

i. the output was created while investigating a project funded within a programme which prescribed the publication of outputs in the open access mode;

ii. the output is to be presented for a peer review evaluation; or

iii. such duty has been prescribed at the faculty or other unit by the dean or director for the purposes of internal checks of the records entered;

c) to provide the data processing officer or coordinator at a faculty or other unit with a document confirming the accuracy and completeness of a record if there are doubts about certain types of outputs which cannot be traced in the basic databases used by the RVVI when checking the records;

d) to present an output for check on request, in accordance with sections 12 and 13 of the Act;

e) to ensure that the text of the output intended for publication which was created in the course of employment or studies of the author at the University includes affiliation to the University and faculty or other unit, in accordance with the format set out in Appendix 1 to this directive;

f) to continuously rank the principal outputs over the past monitored period in the OBD module, with a view to preparing accreditation documents and selecting outputs for the internal and national evaluation of creative activities.


4. If the check under paragraph 3 (c) or (d) is carried out at a time when the author is no longer an employee or student of the University, the respective duty of the author is assumed by the data processing officer for the register of outputs referred to in Article 10 (3) of this directive.


5. Persons responsible for the investigation of projects and grants (in particular principal investigators) and for the preparation and discharge of obligations arising from the registered contracts are required to cooperate as necessary with the workers engaging in the registration of activities.
